KFC outside of home country USA are not new to breakthrough and quirky marketing gimmicks. But the same does not to apply to KFC in its home country. Well, that’s until now. During this year’s Thanksgiving, KFC US unveiled a rather interesting product that’s not fried chicken and not apparels and accessories; it was a camping tent. You know, the thing that offer you a sheltered haven from the elements when out in the wild? Yea. Those kind of tent. It is an official merchandise from the king of fried chicken and it is no ordinary tent, mind you. Continue reading KFC Has A Dome Tent That Disconnect You From The World When Inside
I don’t know of anyone who wanted to smell like KFC even as they are bathing (and still smells the same after showering) and if you do, you’d be wishing you were in Japan because that was the place where you can bathe while smelling like the world famous fried chicken. If you think edible nail polish that tastes like Colonel Sander’s signature fried chicken and candle scent that will make your room reek with fried chicken aroma are the craziest and weirdest to have come from the American fast food chain, well, think again. KFC Japan, in collaboration with Japanese novelty retailer Village Vanguard, has up the ante with, wait for it… Drumstick Bath Bomb.

In what could be the weirdest collaboration in the mobile phone industry is this striking red smartphone from Chinese telecommunication equipment maker Huawei.

And yes. Colonel Sanders now has a phone under his name, well, kind of. Announced by KFC China on its Weibo page (China’s Twitter equivalent).

Continue reading KFC China And Huawei Launches $162 Commemorative KFC Phone
It is customary for a man to gift the love of his life a bouquet of flowers on Valentine’s Day (the price hike on this tho…), but what about a girl’s gift to the man? I don’t know. A Playstation 4 perhaps? Or maybe a sleek iPhone cover like this? But for New Zealanders, particularly those who have an insatiable appetite for the “Finger Lickin’ Good” fried chicken, perhaps a bouquet of KFC’s fried chicken would be suffice. After all, it was said that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, isn’t it? Then again, that is only true if the man in question fancies KFC, like a lot. And if he do, the special man and lady will have to be in New Zealand where this unique Valentine’s Day bouquet is known to exist. Also, some luck will be required too. Continue reading Some New Zealanders Will Be Eating Bouquet of KFC On Valentine’s Day

You have tasted the fried chicken made from secret recipe and recognized the iconic Colonel Sanders. Now, you can read Colonel Sanders’ adventure in ink and mind you, this isn’t just some cheap cartoon literature aimed to hypnotize kids to mindlessly love the Finger Lickin’ Good chicken fried; this is a real deal superhero story starring the dear old Colonel who looks a little less benevolent than the statue placed outside KFC restaurants. The comic book, a collaboration with DC Comics entitled KFC: The Colonel Corps, is written by Antony Bedard and illustrated by Tom Derenick, tells of a story of the Anti-Colonel attacking the Multiverse and how the various Colonels from the multiverse band together to protect the future of fried chicken.

I remember when I was younger, KFC used to serve fried chickens with real plates and proper cutlery (yes, I am that old). In the early years, the management decided to dispense with the formality and took on the disposable route, which kind of makes sense as one of its very first and arguably most recognizable slogan was “Finger Lickin’ Good.” The slogan was dropped, picked up, dropped, made a comeback and eventually dropped again. Notwithstanding, the slogan is what most people associate KFC with and as it turns out, KFC Hong Kong is not only still using the slogan, but it has taken the concept of “Finger Lickin’ Good” to a whole new level with edible nail polish that tastes like, well, KFC fried chicken, of course. And yes, it is a real thing. Continue reading KFC-flavored Nail Polish: Now, That’s Literally Finger Lickin’ Good!
You know how it is. You were in the midst of savoring some delicious, finger lickin’ good fried chicken when suddenly your phone beeps and you had to reply to that all-important text with content like “where are you?” and you will be like “I am eating my damn fried chicken, that’s where! No thanks for being this late.” But regardless of how annoyed you are when a text or email interrupts the serene and quality time between you and the well sacrificed chick, you still have to make the reply, else you’d be eating alone. But there’s a price to pay for the midst-of-eating replying and that’s a greasy touchscreen or in some instance where you managed to wipe off most part of the fried chicken oil with a napkin, it would be sticky screen. Either way, it is not good. Continue reading Never Mind About Greasy Fingers, KFC Tray Typer Will Let You Type Away Without Greasing Your Handset
